Holocaust diary of Polish teen unveiled

June 4, 2007 22:10

The diary of a 14-year-old Jewish girl, dubbed the "Polish Anne Frank," unveiled Monday by Israel's Holocaust museum more than 60 years after the teenager wrote it, vividly describes the world crumbling around her as she came of age in a Jewish ghetto. "Rutka's Notebook" is both a daily account of the horrors of the Holocaust in Bedzin, Poland, and a scrapbook detailing the life of a typical teenager in extraordinary circumstances. The 60-page memoir includes innocent adolescent banter, concerns and first loves - combined with a cold analysis of the fate of European Jewry.
